Back in September I was trying to decide on what photos to use and a name for the pattern. I usually start with a working name for a pattern, most often I use the name of the yarn and what I am making. This was called Grass Cardigan, the yarn is Plymouth Yarn Grass. Sometimes I will go for a name that has very little to do with the design (Brianna, Isabel, Adirondack) but this time I decided to simply name it
Drop Stitch Cardigan.
A seamless short sleeve cardigan knit from the top
down. The round yoke has eyelets marking the
increases. The attached front bands are knit in
ribbing. Flattering A-line shaping is accented with
a dropped stitch pattern.

I checked on Ravelry today and it is the top 20th pattern that Ravelers are viewing. Keep checking it out on Ravelry and keep it up there.
This morning I participated in a local clean up. Brown's Woods, named for the previous owner of the property, is just about two miles from my house but I hadn't been there since I catered some luncheons for Mrs. Brown sometime in the 80's. In my former life I had a catering business. Seeing a recruitment of volunteers to clean up the Woods on facebook, I decided this was the perfect opportunity to explore the property. I found out that the house is being used as an office for the Barnegat Bay Partnership, a local environmental organization. The clean-up was organized by an energetic young girl who works for AmeriCorps, similar to the Peace Corps only in the US. I will definitely come back with my daughter when she visits with her dog.
